Goals flooding in for Waterside’s Craig Kidby

THE goals have been flooding in for Waterside striker Craig Kidby this season.

The 28-year-old has scored 32 goals in 11 matches so far this season, easily making him the leading scorer in the SIL.

Kidby played at a higher level when he was with Needham Market Reserves, but he played for Westerfield United ‘A’ in Division Six a couple of years ago and netted 49 goals that season, before playing for Westerfield’s Reserves last season.

Kidby, who netted twice in Saturday’s 5-1 win away to Tacket Street BBOB, modestly said: “I should have scored more – I missed a couple of chances in the second half.

“It’s not been a bad season so far. I am enjoying my football again – I didn’t enjoy it so much last season – and it helps playing alongside Tye Webb. I couldn’t ask for anyone better to play alongside upfront.

“Both myself and manager Danny Banthorpe set me a target of 20 goals this season, but I am now looking to score 50.”

Banthorpe said: “Craig is a natural goalscorer who rarely misses chances and makes goalscoring look easy. He is a good team player and has stuck by us.

“Tye Webb was previously at Grundisburgh and scored 30 goals in 16 games for us in Division Five last season. Tye is a marked man and helps to take the pressure off Craig, which creates more space and chances for him.”
